Pale Moon locks up with chaturbate web

Unread post by gemosa » 2022-05-25, 13:11

Operating system: Ubuntu 16.04.7 LTS
Browser version: 31.0.0
32-bit or 64-bit browser?: 64 bit
Problem URL: https://chaturbate.com/
Browser theme (if not default): default
Installed add-ons: Adblock Latitude 5.0.9 and Sasuga 2.2.1
Installed plugins: (about:plugins): Java 11.261.2

After opening this page the browser locks up, CPU usage increases, memory usage arrives to 5.5 GB and the only way to unlock the browser is to kill the process.
No way to open any tool (Inspector, web console, debugger, etc.)
Any other tab open locks also and any file being downloaded is stopped.

To remark: I have no interest at all in opening that page, but it pops up like an ad on other websites.

Any help?
Thanks.

Ugh, why did I try that?
Can confirm, 100% usage of 1 core and no way to recover other than killing the process.
Interestingly enough, no run-away RAM usage...
This machine is Linux Mint.

Wouldn't surprise me if this is yet another case of someone having an event listener callback changing the very thing it is listening on, i.e. bad scripting causing an endless loop.

It's a change in behaviour from 29.4.6 to 31 (on Windows)

Here, Chaturbate works fine on 29.4.6, providing I don't block highwebmedia.com
If I block, I crash

As an alternative, and since I am not interested in visiting that site, is there a plugin that allows redirecting requests from one site to another? I can configure this web to redirect to www.example.com with no consequences.
I have searched and if there is, it has been hidden from me. :)

Thanks

Can't confirm.
29.4.6 (fresh profile) freezes like 31.0.0. No difference.

Extension, not plugin. Both terms mean entirely different things in the context of Pale Moon. Take a look at URL Rewriter.

I found a solution to my problem, it do not solve the lock up but is a workaround to avoid the "benefits" of being informed about the "advantages" of this website.

I've installed the extension (thanks Moonbat for the difference with puglins) URL Rewriter 2.8.4 with the following configuration:

Code: Select all

    "redirects": [
        {
            "exampleUrl": "https://www.chaturbate.com/something/",
            "includePattern": "http*://*.chaturbate.com/*",
            "excludePattern": "",
            "redirectUrl": "http://www.example.com/",
            "patternType": "W",
            "unescapeMatches": false,
            "escapeMatches": false,
            "disabled": false
        },
        {
            "exampleUrl": "http://chaturbate.com",
            "includePattern": "http*://chaturbate.com",
            "excludePattern": "",
            "redirectUrl": "http://example.com",
            "patternType": "W",
            "unescapeMatches": false,
            "escapeMatches": false,
            "disabled": false
        },
        {
            "exampleUrl": "chaturbate.com",
            "includePattern": "*chaturbate.com*",
            "excludePattern": "",
            "redirectUrl": "http://example.com",
            "patternType": "W",
            "unescapeMatches": false,
            "escapeMatches": false,
            "disabled": false
        }
Now every time a website is so kind as to provide me with this "information" nothing happens.
